Hey Guys, I'll post a recording later but I got a question. I can go up to D-Eb5 in Head voice , Thing is, around those notes I get really really chokey, almost like the resonating space is gone. I can only go up further in somewhat airy falsetto. anybody have any suggestions?

Cheers

Didn't find a thread for this so I'll ask it here:

Falsetto is when the vocal cords "let loose" because they can't handle the air pressure, resulting in a breathy tone, right?

What's the difference between reinforced falsetto and a sharp head voice?

Which one is this, and how would one go about training to make this sound?

That's very common when expanding your range. Your highest notes start to feel choked off. If you've got some decent exercises to expand your range, just keep working at it. One way that worked for me was this: Think about going into a smaller place when going to that highest note. Don't force it. Start small and it will open up over a few days / weeks.

Geno,

Though it's a decent table from NCVS it's still far from comprehensive. For instance, falsetto can be used all the way down to E3 and even below and in the higher range it can be very powerful. So in regards to the description of falsetto in the table, sound quality and pitch are not comprehensive. :)

Martin - I agree with you about their descriptions of quality and pitch. I can sing falsetto (the way they define it) pretty low. And you're right - falsetto can be very powerful. The table is basic and general - not comprehensive.

But I like the simplicity of the table as I think it lays out the different configurations in a very easy to understand format. There are so many definitions and nuances floating around - and a lot of people talk about them in esoteric or cryptic terms. This creates A LOT of confusion. I like to offer things that helped me understand.
